Around 25 million households will be asked about work, health, national identity, citizenship, ethnic background, education, second homes, language, marital status and so on. The answers will be turned into statistics used to build a picture of today's society.

SAVE NORTH BEACH
CAR PARK

Fylde Borough Council  submitted planning applications to close the car park and build housing on the site which would result in the loss of this valuable community amenity.

A Public Meeting was held in the United Reformed Church Hall, St Annes. It was open to all.

The aim was for the public and local councillors to have their say on the future of the North Beach car park.
